            The Industrial Revolution changed our world in a way that few other events have: it changed the landscape with heavy industries using the plentiful supply of fossil fuels. It changed our lifestyles as urban life took over from rural. Wages brought freedom of travel and social mob...ility to many. The world of 1700 looked vastly different to that of 1800 as the foundations for the modern age were laid. Great Inventions of the Industrial Revolution celebrates the major inventions and projects of the period 1700-1860, a period when science and technology began to establish its role in modern life.

            Numerical Analysis for Applied Science

            Numerical Analysis for Applied Science (Hardback, 2nd Edition)

            Pragmatic and Adaptable Textbook Meets the Needs of Students and Instructors from Diverse Fields Numerical analysis is a core subject in data science and an essential tool for applied mathematicians, engineers, and physical and biological scientists. This updated and expanded ed...ition of Numerical Analysis for Applied Science follows the tradition of its precursor by providing a modern, flexible approach to the theory and practical applications of the field. As before, the authors emphasize the motivation, construction, and practical considerations before presenting rigorous theoretical analysis. This approach allows instructors to adapt the textbook to a spectrum of uses, ranging from one-semester, methods-oriented courses to multi-semester theoretical courses. The book includes an expanded first chapter reviewing useful tools from analysis and linear algebra. Subsequent chapters include clearly structured expositions covering the motivation, practical considerations, and theory for each class of methods. The book includes over 250 problems exploring practical and theoretical questions and 32 pseudocodes to help students implement the methods. Other notable features include: A preface providing advice for instructors on using the text for a single semester course or multiple-semester sequence of courses Discussion of topics covered infrequently by other texts at this level, such as multidimensional interpolation, quasi-Newton methods in several variables, multigrid methods, preconditioned conjugate-gradient methods, finite-difference methods for partial differential equations, and an introduction to finite-element theory New topics and expanded treatment of existing topics to address developments in the field since publication of the first edition More than twice as many computational and theoretical exercises as the first edition. Numerical Analysis for Applied Science, Second Edition provides an excellent foundation for graduate and advanced undergradua

            Dynamic System Reliability: Modeling and Analysis of Dynamic and Dependent Behaviors

            Dynamic System Reliability: Modeling and Analysis of Dynamic and Dependent Behaviors (Hardback)

            Offers timely and comprehensive coverage of dynamic system reliability theory This book focuses on hot issues of dynamic system reliability, systematically introducing the reliability modeling and analysis methods for systems with imperfect fault coverage, systems with function ...dependence, systems subject to deterministic or probabilistic common-cause failures, systems subject to deterministic or probabilistic competing failures, and dynamic standby sparing systems. It presents recent developments of such extensions involving reliability modelling theory, reliability evaluation methods, and features numerous case studies based on real-world examples. The presented dynamic reliability theory can enable a more accurate representation of actual complex system behavior, thus more effectively guiding the reliable design of real-world critical systems. Dynamic System Reliability: Modelling and Analysis of Dynamic and Dependent Behaviors begins by describing the evolution from the traditional static reliability theory to the dynamic system reliability theory, and provides a detailed investigation of dynamic and dependent behaviors in subsequent chapters. Although written for those with a background in basic probability theory and stochastic processes, the book includes a chapter reviewing the fundamentals that readers need to know in order to understand contents of other chapters which cover advanced topics in reliability theory and case studies. The first book systematically focusing on dynamic system reliability modelling and analysis theory Provides a comprehensive treatment on imperfect fault coverage (single-level/multi-level or modular), function dependence, common cause failures (deterministic and probabilistic), competing failures (deterministic and probabilistic), and dynamic standby sparing Includes abundant illustrative examples and case studies based on real-world systems Covers recent advances in combinatorial models and algorithms for dynamic system r

            The Political Economy of the European Union's Emissions Trading System

            The Political Economy of the European Union's Emissions Trading System (Hardback)

            Climate change is considered the major international environmental problem of our time. Emission trading was incorporated in the Kyoto Protocol and is widely presented as the best instrument for combating global warming. The European Union's Emissions Trading System was the first... such trading scheme launched and has become the flagship of the EU's efforts to fight climate change. This book analyses the rationale and the basic design of the European Union Emission Trading Scheme. It also discusses its workings during the first two trading periods (2005-2007, 2008-2012) and the initiation of the third phase (2013-2020), following a revision of the scheme. The book offers a critical assessment of the EU ETS from a radical political economy standpoint, challenging mainstream accounts. The analysis reveals the limited environmental effectiveness and distributional injustice of the scheme. It concludes that, since these pitfalls are generated from the nature of the scheme and its embeddedness in the EU capitalist economies, enduring solutions to climate change require radical transformation of the economy and society, including a new energy structure primarily based on renewable energy.

            A comprehensive review of position location technology - from fundamental theory to advanced practical applications Positioning systems and location technologies have become significant components of modern life, used in a multitude of areas such as law enforcement and security,... road safety and navigation, personnel and object tracking, and many more. Position location systems have greatly reduced societal vulnerabilities and enhanced the quality of life for billions of people around the globe - yet limited resources are available to researchers and students in this important field. The Handbook of Position Location: Theory, Practice, and Advances fills this gap, providing a comprehensive overview of both fundamental and cutting-edge techniques and introducing practical methods of advanced localization and positioning. Now in its second edition, this handbook offers broad and in-depth coverage of essential topics including Time of Arrival (TOA) and Direction of Arrival (DOA) based positioning, Received Signal Strength (RSS) based positioning, network localization, and others. Topics such as GPS, autonomous vehicle applications, and visible light localization are examined, while major revisions to chapters such as body area network positioning and digital signal processing for GNSS receivers reflect current and emerging advances in the field. This new edition: Presents new and revised chapters on topics including localization error evaluation, Kalman filtering, positioning in inhomogeneous media, and Global Positioning (GPS) in harsh environments Offers MATLAB examples to demonstrate fundamental algorithms for positioning and provides online access to all MATLAB code Allows practicing engineers and graduate students to keep pace with contemporary research and new technologies Contains numerous application-based examples including the application of localization to drone navigation, capsule endoscopy localization, and satellite navigation and localization Rev
